ABOUT THIS SITE:

NOTE: YELLOW SHADING: Rex’s hikes for the week

The Hikes for the Week list below contains only free, non-repeating hikes in L.A. and Ventura Counties. I also have excluded hikes in Griffith Park and Mount Baldy as there are 1 or more group hikes nearly every day in those parks by one of the many Meetup groups, so see the Google calendar at the bottom of the page for those and all other scheduled hikes from around 50 meetup groups in most of Southern California.

THE HIKES FOR THE WEEK LIST IS USUALLY UPDATED ON SUNDAYS. HIKES MAY CHANGE. SO…FOR THE MOST UP-TO-THE-MINUTE LISTINGS, SEE THE AUTOMATICALLY-GENERATED GOOGLE CALENDAR AT THE LINK ABOVE OR AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE)

ALSO: the Google calendar carries all Meetup hikes listed for several months ahead, or even next year. Just slide the arrow down on the right hand side of the calendar and check it out!
